The internet is abuzz with speculation on what the world can expect to find out at 5 pm. Most of the talk is about the possibility the long-awaited 2Pac biopic is finally set to move forward. There have been reports Marcc Rose, the actor that played Pac in Straight Outta Compton, is working with famed director John Singleton on a movie.
“Me and director John Singleton are trying to brainstorm and form together a proper biopic for him,” said Rose. “Hopefully if everything works out we can make it work.”
Singleton was once attached to the 2Pac film being produced by L.T. Hutton. He was replaced by Devil In A Blue Dress director Carl Franklin. Singleton stated he was upset about the direction the motion picture was taking.
“The reason I am not making this picture is because the people involved aren’t really respectful of the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur,” wrote Singleton.
AllHipHop.com spoke with Hutton in 2014. The Program Pictures executive and former 2Pac associate at Death Row Records guaranteed the biopic from his camp would tell an honest portrayal of the music legend.
“People know bits and pieces. I was fortunate enough to be right in the middle of all of it, so I know exactly what happened,” explained Hutton. “It’s going to be covered like you haven’t seen it before. We’re going to dispel some of the myths about it. I don’t want to give it away, but it’s more realistic than Notorious. It’s not a diss. It’s just the truth.”
